Burrata is one of the most special cheeses that hasn’t really been too available until just recently. A cows milk cheese made with a thin outer layer of mozzerella cheese and filled with creamy inside. Available in specialty cheese sections of your grocery store and in Italian markets as well. I have seen it at Whole foods recently. Be mindful to check the expiration date to ensure its freshness.
